The Japanese artist Takashi Murakami combines highly refined classical Japanese painting techniques with distinctive Pop sensibilities. Known for his “Superflat” style, directly influenced by manga and anime, the artist creates works that explode with color and playfulness. For the 2015–16 ski season, in collaboration with Aspen Skiing Company, Murakami has produced four unique images, all of which embody his trademark visual aesthetic.
Story Art is a community outreach program presented in partnership with the Carbondale Branch Library and the Glenwood Springs Branch Library. This free program for elementary and middle school students provides playful exploration of storytelling through a group reading and art-making activity inspired by AAM exhibitions.
Dream big in this open-ended, project-based Workshop for teens interested in designing and building for a better world. Using architecture and design as a framework for personal and group explorations in creative problem solving, we will respond to real life issues with the creation of innovative prototypes and artworks using a variety of traditional and nontraditional materials. Teens will unveil their design solutions at an art show for friends and family at the end of the week.
